But it was too late. He was too near.
With a quick strike of its tongue, the lizard swallowed its prey.
55 Fiction ::
A literary work will be considered 55 Fiction if it has:
Fifty-five words or less (A non-negotiable rule)
One or more characters,
Some conflict, and
A resolution. (Not limited to moral of the story)
The title of the story is not part of the overall word count, but it still can’t exceed seven words.
Many new versions of the 55 Fiction have started to modify on the rules by either ignoring the rule to include conflict, or basing it on a true incident and dramatising it.
